Publisher's Summary

Has your self-help become self-criticism? A wise and often hilarious exploration of the conflicts between spiritual aspiration and the compulsion to improve from Oprah SuperSoul 100 member Danielle LaPorte.

Like a wise girlfriend you can totally relate to, Danielle cheerleads you to own your wisdom and self-worth by having a good laugh (and maybe a good cry) at the ways you've been trying to improve on your self-improvement. Rooted in compassion, feminism, and spiritual activism, White Hot Truth is an intimate and (hilariously) relatable account of self-help tales gone wrong - and very right.

If you love Brene Brown's and Liz Gilbert's authenticity and Marianne Williamson's strong spirit, you'll adore how Danielle lays bare "boundaries for spiritual people"; the "discipleshit" that happens when we give our power away; a "soul-perspective" on suffering; "overtolerance" and "foolish compassion" in relationships; sneaky self-loathing; and spiritual glamour. And in her poetic and brazen way, she brings it home with the hottest truth of all: You are your own guru.

Loved it!

I just finished and I really liked it. I usually listen to audiobooks on 2X or even 2.5X just because I'm more interested in the information than the experience. But Danielle has such a soothing and comforting voice and I listened to the whole thing at normal speed! Listening to White Hot Truth felt like hanging out with a girlfriend who I really respected. I think you would enjoy :-)

A book for all

Danielle is best-known for her business advice. I have followed her poetic blog for years. Unlike her other books this is not business advice. It is more a manifesto against our blind-faith in self-development. Because she has the means to test everything

Some useful advice but too much woo.

Would you try another book from Danielle LaPorte and/or Danielle LaPorte?

Probably not. I'm over the whole new age thing and have become far more skeptical as I get older. This is for the same reason I gave up on traditional religion. Most of it is made up explanations for things we really don't know the answers to. I'm okay with mystery until real evidence shows up. When she started talking about "soul contracts" that was it for me. I could not keep listening. I agree it's an interesting premise but doesn't hold up to any logical scrutiny. Not for me.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

A lot of eye rolling and exasperation. New Age to me is no different than other religions. It benefits those offering it's concepts in hopes of profiting monetarily.

Any additional comments?

She did give some good advice about trusting your own feelings no matter who is talking and I think I'll take that advice with her book.

What I’ve needed to hear...

As a spiritual seeker with interest in all religions, philosophies, and new agey technology, it can get difficult to find the truth in it all; which is ironic because truth is what we are seeking.

This brought so much light into my life and gave truth to the beliefs I’ve had but didn’t know if anyone shared.

It is a powerful test to your own inner strength and your inner self compassion and love.


This is the book I’ve been waiting for.

Thank you Danielle, so very much.

Freeing Truth to your bones

This book made me feel free from all overload of spiritual entertainment and stand in my truth and my values . I'm extremely grateful for Whit Hot Truth because I feel it and I feel it gave me permission to put things in this messy Divine order 💛

A dose of bliss for every day

Amazing book, my absolute favourite audiobook since my childhood cinderella audiobook cassette that disintegrated out of use. Danielle's books are definitely and absolutely meant to be heard more than read. She's a natural story teller and this book is more than words, is energy, presence, bliss... I can't recommend it enough.

Remembering

I've listened through, twice, and will keep it by me to continue to dip in to help me remember what i know, for those moments when I forget.
